enjoyed our time spent exploring this zoo. the shows are a must see. the grounds are vast but paths are well marked. a notch above a typical zoo.

Beautiful zoo maintained by dedicated staff. Exceptional care taken with the animals and the grounds. Focus seems to be equally split between the care given to the animals and the need for cash. Understand it is an expensive venture but sometimes made to feel that the almighty dollar was more important than the experience.

We loved it. We went with our 3yo and nearly 2yo and they both loved it too. Different to other zoos we have been to there was lots of opportunity for them to touch and feed the animals. They touched baby crocodiles, koalas, a camel, a lizard, kangaroos, sheep and goats. They fed elephants, farm animals and kangaroos. We hired a stroller for $14 and it was great. There are shuttles that go around the park as it is spread out. Our 3yo walked the whole day but she was pretty tired at the end. The good thing is that your entry fee although expensive generally does include everything (except food and drink of course) - there are rides, bouncy castle, feeding opportunities etc.

We caught the bus from Mooloolaba and it was great. $5 each, under 3yo free. You need to pre-book. We got a commentary on the way there from the driver and on the way back they played a video - the Irwins on their movie set. The timings were perfect as we had just enough time to see everything but not too long with tired kids.

I was impressed with the cleanliness and professional approach of the attractions and staff
Great range of wildlife, was a little disappointed the show at the Crockasium didn't have more crocs but all in all a great time was had by all

If you go to QLD, it's worth the time and effort to visit this zoo. It was immaculate in appearance, nothing out of place and extremely clean. Lots of animals to see and different shows throughout the day with tigers, crocs, birds, etc etc. Make sure you see the show at the croceseum. Very entertaining and interesting. Entry price is not too bad considering what your money goes towards. Food prices are no different to any other place eg. theme parks or the AFL/NRL. Well worth the money to visit.
